Treatment

Selective Herbicides

  • Like many grassy weeds, goosegrass can be very difficult to control as there is a limited selection of herbicides that are effective.
  • Make sure to identify which type of grass you have to ensure that the herbicide is safe for it.  Go to our filter options to choose which grass you have.
  • Multiple applications are necessary with this stubborn weed.
  • Recommended Products:  Revolver, Specticle Flo, and Grass Getter

Non-Selective Herbicides

  • Spot treating with non-selective herbicides is very effective and cost-efficient if your goosegrass problem is not very widespread.
  • A variety of different herbicides can be used and to get the best results
  • Multiple applications are necessary
  • Use a fine stream or low-pressure fan spray to avoid contact with other vegetation.
  • Apply when there is a low chance of rain to avoid runoff of chemical to other vegetation.
  • Recommended Products:   Gly Pho-Sel Pro Dry 75 SG, Roundup Quikpro, Eraser Max
